    A FEW WORDS ABOUT SAFETY

    Your safety and the safety of others are very important. And using this generator safely is an important responsibility.

    To help you make informed decisions about safety, we have provided operating procedures and other information on labels and in this manual. This information alerts you to potential hazards that could hurt you or others.

    Of course, it is not practical or possible to warn you about all the hazards associated with operating or maintaining a generator. You must use your own good judgment.

    You will find important safety information in a variety of forms, including:

    • Safety Labels — on the generator.

    • Safety Messages — preceded by a safety alert symbol and one of three signal words, DANGER, WARNING, or CAUTION.

    These signal words mean:

    • Safety Headings — such as IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION.

    • Safety Section — such as GENERATOR SAFETY.

    • Instructions — how to use this generator correctly and safely.

    This entire book is filled with important safety information — please read it carefully.

    You WILL be KILLED or SERIOUSLY HURT if you don’t follow instructions.

    You CAN be KILLED or SERIOUSLY HURT if you don’t follow instructions.

    You CAN be HURT if you don’t follow instructions.
